History

Dr Ruth Amos completed her undergraduate degree in 2006 with a University Medal from The University of Tasmania. She began teaching Foundation Chemistry through the English Language Centre at The University of Tasmania and went on to teach Organic and Physical Chemistry at a second and third year level as well as continuing with Foundation Chemistry through the ELC and through the Discipline of Chemistry.

Dr Amos completed her PhD in 2010 and while teaching at The University of Tasmania she also worked as a postdoctoral fellow at The University of Sydney from 2010 to 2014 before returning to full-time work at The University of Tasmania in 2015.

Dr Amos has supervised two summer scholarship students, an honours student, and three PhD students. She has published more than twenty peer-reviewed journal articles in high ranking journals such as Analytical Chemistry, Chemical Communications, and the Journal of Organic Chemistry.

"As my supervisor and colleague, Ruth helped me a lot in my research, especially in editing and polishing the manuscript for publication. As we all know that scientific writing is different and it requires logic and skills to make the manuscript better. Ruth has rich experience in it as she writes pretty much, most importantly, she has revised and published so many papers. It is also a good opportunity for non-English speaking students to learn and improve their English, I would highly recommend her for editing."

“Ruth是我博士期间的导师之一,为人和蔼友善有耐心。作为非英语国家的学生,写作是我比较纠结的项目。我的初稿写好后,Ruth会非常有耐心的帮我修改和润色。同样,组里其他学生的文章初稿Ruth也都会帮助修改,修改后的文章逻辑性更强,更加简洁凝练,用词多样并专业。迄今为止我们组里发表的多篇文章Ruth都有参与编辑和修改,可以说惊艳非常丰富。作为她的学生之一,个人的写作水平在她的帮助下也确实有了提高。因此,我非常高兴的推荐您选择她进行文章编辑和润色。”
